A Class Action lawsuit filed Monday accuses Valley Brook Police of arresting motorists outside of their jurisdiction. 

Guthrie Defense Attorney Marvel Lewis says Valley Brook Police have been pulling people over on a stretch of Southeast 59th Street that Oklahoma City annexed 61 years ago. 

Valley Brook’s Police referred all questions to town attorney Ray Vincent, who says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit. 

Vincent also said an “inter-local agreement” between Valley Brook and Oklahoma City Police allows officers from both departments to arrests motorists on either side of the boundary line. 

However, Attorney Lewis says Oklahoma City terminated that agreement more than a decade ago.

“Valley Brook knew or should have known that they should not have been on 59th Street and Eastern.  I have no explanation why they keep enforcing stuff on roads that they shouldn’t have been,” Lewis said.
